What kind of 22 ammo was this? Still seems pretty steep to me.
Glad to see inventory is picking up. Still seems a little steep.

Now the only question is why didn't you buy 3 boxes?!
Seems like things are easing slightly. I sure wish primers would make a return to store shelves. Especially small pistol and rifle.

The sad part of this is that the distributors have not increased their wholesale price a significant amount but the LGS's in my area have double or tripled their prices. The Remington Value Pack 525 rounds with a 30% markup should sell for $21.50 based on the invoice I saw today but was priced at $59.95 and still sold out in about two hours even with a two box limit. This same ammo sold for $15.95 before the frenzy started.
Lucky ducks. I've been stalking stores and trying to find some at a decent price. I was happy to find a few boxes of .22 Shorts. Sure it limits me to my single six, but at least it's something.
I wonder how many new gun owners are paying the much higher prices unaware of what ammo was selling for before the panic.
